...and so this blog will now go 'on hiatus' (as they say in TV) for a week and a half. Never fear, though - the ranting and the gnashing of teeth (and some history and policy stuff) will recommence in the week beginning Monday 11 June.
In the meantime, I leave you with the words of the singer, songwriter and actor Nick Cave, who's been married for over a decade now:
Getting married, for me, was the best thing I ever did. I was suddenly beset with an immense sense of release, that we have something more important than our separate selves, and that is the marriage. There's immense happiness that can come from working towards that.Wish me luck! And see you soon - you, the readers, have powered the blog to stratospheric (well, good) readership figures this month... Easily the highest of its eighteen-month run. Thanks to all of you, and au revoir - for now.
